btopped in Jones and Thomas to
quench my thirst. One bottle of
Pop— was amazed at the extra

MARRIED WOMAN LOSES
FIGHT ON FOUL
Two two young ladies that was
fighting Saturday on 24th Grant
St., could at least have waited
unt'l for instruction from the re
feree you know must not bite or
pull hair or hit below the belt.
The married lady violated all the
rules in the book of Queenberry.
Sho fought the real Coonberry
rules. Therefore lost the fight on
a four according to the 26 judges,
and 9 referees. The crowd want a
return match to be fought on 24th
and Lake St. Saturday night about
1 AM. Look what a crowd you
will draw when the taverns closes.
Winner take all of what you was

22NI) BURDETTE ST.—
You will hear a lot of argument
from now on about the first and
second team of the selected All
Stars Teams, Pro and Con. I
can’t see to save my dear life
why they left Freddie Harris off
the first team. Why, Freddie, is
the most valuable player on the
22nd Burdette St. Ball Diamond.
He plays all positions well, re
gardless of where you put him.
Maybe Fred hasn’t got enough
friends. Willie Ware, the leading
hitter of the league left off of
both teals. My goodiess! There is
lots of players on the second team
that should be on the first team
and some players on the first that
should be playing with the Girl’s
league. Well you got to have a
pull and lots of friends to get
anywhere in this man’s world. So
that is life. Now they pick the All
Stars. Now I am going to pick
mine. Listen closely and draw up |
your chairs close why I tell you
all about thetp. Here is my bonfble
list and nobody hunch me or nudge
me, so here I start. We must have
a manager, so I am selecting

shut them out, because my players
are in condition from hearing
about the plays that didn’t work
on 22nd and Burdette St., every
game played on 22nd street is
played over at the Famous Tuxe
do after 9:30 PM. If we hadn’t
d:d this or did that we wpuld have
won. So drop in some nights and
listen to the ball game. The same

CASH COAL LOSE 5 TO 3—
Florence Merchants beat the coni
boys againt, I<efty Davis let the
Merchants down with 4 hits but
walked 8 and hit one. But mis
plays caused him to lose after the
first inning until the 9th the op
ponets only got one fluke hit. The
umpire gave some awful bad deci
sions on balls and strike causing
the pitcher to work awful hard
and put men on base that should
have been out. Now the regular
season is over the Coal boys are
going to try their luck in Council
Bluffs Sunday in the Legion Tour
nament. Lets all go over and give
them a great big hand.

Omaha Guide’s Fashions by Sante’
Beaver is in favor in Paris this year. We like
it here and its durability and for its compliment
ing any complexion. Sheared Beavers makes the
sleeves and Peter Pan color on th\s very youthful
gray wool coat. There is an extreme left closing
in this model, which is made on the princess lines
for flattery. The hat suggests the Beaver trim, in
brown velours, with a postillion crown and pom
pom to maSce it definitely 1940.
Shades of the nineties in the bustle dress which
is fashion!} favorite again are really smart. This
version in trown wool had leg-o-mutton sleeves
and bustle in the brown moire. There is a back
closing with tiny buttons and a buckle to match,
so you can leaves the bustle off whenever you like.
AS YOU PLEASE, MADAME.

“Between the Lines”
EXHIBIT NUMBER ONE
The war that is pend:ng through
out the world will without doubt
break the heart of mankind! In
brutality and deadliness and suf
fering the World War will be
merely a skirmish and introduc
tion. If Euroope accedes to the
demands of Hitler, it wMl mean
the economic and moral enslave
ment of imillions; and if Europe
does not accede, there is every
reason to except deadly and de
vastating war in the near future.
In any event England is to be
blamed. Her jittery statesman
ship of 1938-39 is but the reaping
of a harvest that was sown in
selfishness and greed these 20
years since the treaty of Versail
les. England was so bent on its
program of world hegemony that
it sacrificed everybody and every
thing that stood in its way. France
knew from bitter experience that
Germany had to be kept in a state
of subjugation, if the peace and
safety of Europe was to be pie
served. France faced the ugly facts
of history. England tried in the
interest of its territorial, and eco
nomic hegemony to be idealistic
and failed to note the signs of the
times, with the result Germany
has come back and taken the
lead in the affairs of the world.
I repeat what I said upon my
return from Germany last summer
that the only way to keep Ger
many from conquering Europe is
to conquer its territory and par
titions it among the other nations.
There is no nation of combination
of nations that can accomplish
this today. The i-ssult Germany
is bidding for the supremacy not
only of Europe but the world.
If England had faced the facts
and like France had; prepared,
the world would be spared the orgy
of death and suffering that is
immediately in the offering.
To make matters worse our
politicians are inviting disaster
to Europe and eventually to this
country by as cheap and vacillat
ing shortsightedness as was ever
displayed by intelligent men. With
our resources at the command of
England and France they have a
chance; but without these Ger
many’s success is sure. Just a vote
in the right direction would save
the situation in Europe but alas!
.When we boys hunted rabbits on
the plantations of South Carolina,
we had dogs that could run what
we called “slight-lick” meaning
running with the rabbit in sight
but once the rabbit was out of
sight they left the trail. It seems
that most of the politicians in
Washington who are throttling
Roosevelt’s wise and sagacious
statesmanship are “sight-lick” fel
lows and cannot see very far into
the future. England’s vaunted dip
lomacy has recently been “sight
lick” and they are lost before the
long range thinking and planning
of the Germans.
Negroes must learn the danger
that lurks in “sight-lick” thinking
on our conditions. What is our
immediate advantage must be sub
ordinated to the advantage of the
group and the oncoming genera
tions. The world’s EXHIBIT
NUMBER ONE in a long range
thinking on the problems of Ne
groes is found theve in Richmond.
W. A. Jordan moving figure in
the Southern Aid Society, made
one of the finest gestures of Ne
gro leadership within recent
times. When Miss Black was dis
missed from the school system of
Norfolk because she tried through
legal means to get equal salary
for equal work, Mr. Jordan in
structed his Norfolk branch to of
fer Miss Black a position with the
Southern Aid Society is the er
omplification of the “Double-Duty
Dollar” philosophy at its best. But
more than that, it shows how the
dollar may be made to do triple
duty. When Negroes insure with
the Southern Aid they get pro
tection, as duty number one; they
make jobs, for Negroes, as duty
number two and they protect Ne
gro womanhood, as duty number
three. The dollar spent thus be
comes a potent factor in Negro

groes in business and these in
turn would support the Negro buy
ing public, we could get some
where. The nation owes Mr. Jor
dan a debt of grat'tude for coming
to Miss Black’s rescue; for in res
cuing her a service is being ren
dered the face. Whether Miss
Black elects to return to school
for further training or to take
a position with the Southern Aid,
does not matter, it will certainly
steel her heart to know that so
